Corporate Acquisitions


We are experienced buy-side advisers and have run a number of strategic projects for PLCs, PE houses, owner managed businesses and private individuals.

Over the years we have identified many attractive acquisition opportunities for our clients through our significant network of contacts and extensive research capabilities. 

We are experienced in advising acquirers throughout the acquisition process from initiating discussions with prospective vendors, recommending the most effective way to structure the transaction, drafting of the Heads of Agreement and leading the transaction through to successful completion.

Many of our clients have completed a series of acquisitions with Bishopsgate, recognising the high quality of service delivered. Indeed, many of our current clients have a 'buy and build' strategy and we have worked with them for a number of years.

From start to finish Bishopsgate could not have been more pro-active and personable. Having got an early understanding of our business, the Bishopsgate team drew up a proposed timetable and then led and co-ordinated the process expertly with the Bourne management team, their accountants and solicitors. The sale was completed on time and to a budget and we have no hesitation in recommending Bishopsgate to anyone considering appointing corporate finance advisors for their business
